Apple’s current promotion that sees anyone who buys an Apple TV get a free $25 iTunes card is all well and good if you’re in the process of picking one up, but you’re out of luck if you already bought one. Or are you?
It turns out that if you bought your current Apple TV within a couple of weeks then you may be able to get a free $ 25 iTunes card after all.
Reddit user LoveExperimentation was in just that situation recently and took to the Apple sub-Reddit in order to share his recent visit to an Apple Store. As he goes on to say, the Apple Store staff allowed him to return his existing Apple TV and then re-buy it, instantly qualifying for the aforementioned free iTunes gift card.
“Awesome experience as always with Apple Customer Service.”
Of course, for all this to work you’ll need to have bought your Apple TV from an Apple Store within the allotted return period and have your receipt and box, which we’re going to assume you do.
Turning up to the store with the right attitude will probably help too, so please don’t be that guy. And remember, an Apple TV is a great buy anyway, with or without a free iTunes gift card.
Apple has done offers where buyers get free iTunes cards when purchasing certain items before, and there’s always a risk that you’ll miss out on such a deal if you buy at the wrong time. Still, that’s got to be less annoying than buying a new Mac only for Apple to refresh it a few days later!
If you don’t have an Apple TV right now, and you’re planning to get one, then this is perhaps the right time to grab it, as Apple is throwing in a $25 iTunes Gift Card with every purchase for a very limited time, as we mentioned above. After all, who can say no to free stuff right?
